Some daimyo had higher status than others due to their noble ancestry or the value of their land. There were also ranks within samurai, just as there is in an army.

The purpose of Koan is to move people from their normal state of thinking and make them try to help people.
The teacher of the Zen Religion is called the Koan.
Confucianism is more known as philosophy rather then a full religion
The daimyo was regarded as the leader of the house and the samurai were regarded as the Daimyo's children. Portuguese ministries introduced Christianity to Japan in the sixteenth century.
Japanese militaries grew suspicious that this new religion was trying to tale over japan and that it was un-Japanese .
The Christians in Japan in that time were ruthlessly persecuted and attempted to get rid of the whole religion from Japan.
Only 2% of the Japanese religion now is Christians.
Buddhist temples and halls were made out of unpainted wood. A temple building complex frequently included a bell tower and another multi storey tower called a pagoda.
